St. George Pear Brandy
St. George Pear Brandy is made from the most aromatic dry-farmed, organic Bartlett pears we can find—and we pack about 30 pounds of fruit into every 750ml bottle! This unsweetened spirit is stunningly fruit-forward, with all the complexity of a perfectly ripe pear.
Pear Brandy has been St. George's flagship spirit since 1982, the year our distillery was founded. Today we make an array of spirits—all of them inspired by the philosophy of craft brandy production.
We begin by sourcing the most flavorful and characteristic fruit we can find and then distill it at its prime. We use the whole fruit in its entirety in a deliberate effort to maximize the most elemental and essential flavors and aromas.
We never add sugar or anything artificial, so all you get is the honest essence of the raw material.
We distill our brandy on our collection of copper pot stills—including our oldest still, a 250-liter beauty custom made for us by the Arnold Holstein Company in 1982, the same year we were founded. All our stills demand expertise and keen judgment, but in return give us extraordinary command over each distillation run.
Done right (our minimum standard!), a single still run is all it takes.
